    Need thoughts how to keep a mini drinking water.

    Folks I knew with Biggie horses used to swear by bringing water from home to the shows. They packed big containers of water in their trailer. Horses and dogs don't appreciate strange water, flavoring it sounds like a good idea. Get them used to it at home so the flavoring makes the water at...

    bitter cold and snow

    4 to 8 inches of snow predicted for tonight. UGH. On top of the ice storm we just had. My gates are all frozen shut. My son climbs over to get the feed and water to my critters. My dogs can hardly stand up on the ice to take a poop and now this snow storm is predicted. Already had school...

    The "f" word...

    Cushings is not a death sentence. I know of several folks with minis and biggies that have been successfully managed on Cushings medications. Takes a dedicated owner to be sure that the medication is delivered faithfully. My one friend cared for a mini with cushings that was exercised...

    Giving Aspirin to Dogs...How much??

    Giving Aspirin to Dogs...How much??

    That photo I attached is my smallish Disney type little dog hairy female young dog I went to the shelter to bring home. I came home with a male mixed breed hound. LOL Your heart will tell you what to do. Keep us posted and include photos, we do so much enjoy the pictures.

    Giving Aspirin to Dogs...How much??

    Your heart and dogs will tell you what to do. I totally understand where you are coming from. I thought my boston girl was going to be huge and then she just stopped growing. She seems petite to me, but she weighs about 16 lbs and has long legs and is very athletic. I had no idea about the 3...

    commercials I LOVE

    Of course the Ram truck Paul Harvey farmer commercial would be my favorite.

    Presidential selfie video

    Oh Vickie... so glad you got the part about "exercising my right not to walk". yep, that is me and the reason I posted that clip, I was hoping somebody would get it. That movie surfaces from time to time on tv. I take the road less traveled by.

    microchipping your pets... a good idea

    I have many pets here that were dumped. It was nice this boy had a real home. It feels good to help them find their way.
